At city hall, debate continued over a controversial proposal that would require organizations feeding the homeless to get a free permit. Some folks protested the ordinance on Wednesday, and on Thursday the council slowed down its progress to allow for more testimony.

We told you about a new twist in the effort to save the former Walt Disney studio on 31st Street, a study on redeveloping it as a training center for the city’s growing digital media industry.

As Midtown prepares for Porchfest, a music festival to be held on West Plaza neighborhood porches, we profiled one of the bands, the Wooly Vicars.

Early results from our poll on bike sharing show the most interest in bike stations at Valentine and Broadway, with the most responses so far coming from the Southmoreland neighborhood, followed by Roanoke, South Hyde Park and Volker.
